Interaction between capacity typology and delivery waves

Hi Is there any interaction between capacity typology and Delivery waves.  For example if I set an email capacity typology of 200,000 emails per hour and have an email with 300,000 recipients  set to go out in two waves of 150,000 1 hour apart, will the capacity typology take into account the waves or just work on the 300,000 and exclude (if set) 50,000 recipients?

Many Thanks

I presume yes. In the case of email deliveries, the Do not limit instantaneous delivery capacity option lets you ignore this availability range and send your emails at the same time.

Hi davidm1708369​,

By default, capacity rules are for indication purposes only. Select the Exclude messages in excess of capacity from the target option to prevent the defined load from being exceeded. In this case, excess messages will be automatically excluded from the deliveries using this typology rule.

Thanks Venu,

So assume that the "Exclude messages in excess of capacity from the target" is ticked.  Does the capacity rule take into account that the delivery has been split into two waves?

So will AC deliver two waves of 150,000 or will it deliver two waves of 125,000 based on the capacity rule and delivery waves

Thanks
